Bars & Nightlife
Georgetown is not overrun with nightspots but it does have a few places to ‘lime’ (hanging out) where you can relax, sip cocktails and shoot the breeze. Shiny and new does not always equate to popular and fun, so check with trusted friends and family to find out where the real action is.
- For a quiet drink with friends head to the Hibiscus Bar (Middle St), Julian’s (Cummings St) or the Night Cap Café (Pere St).
- Drinks with some entertainment can be had at the Sidewalk Café & Jazz Club (Middle St) and the Pegasus’ Poolside and Grill Bar (Seawall Road).
- Enjoy reasonably priced drinks and karaoke nights at Cool Square, West Ruimveldt.
- Upscale Restaurant and Sports Bar also hosts cultural evenings featuring local talent (Regent and Hinck Sts).
- Malteenoes Sports Club is great for a no-fuss evening out, where you can argue about cricket, play dominoes (loudly) and gaff (chat) with the locals over a bottle of beer and a serving of delicious fried fish (Thomas Lands).
- Jerries All Night Long Bar and Restaurant is a lively 24-hour outfit, where you can party under a benab. It is also a good place to stop for food after you have partied the night away elsewhere. (Waterloo St). www.jerriesguyana.com
- Chill out with friends and combine sports with pleasure at Karma Bowling Alley, where you can knock over a few skittles, play pool or strut your funky stuff on the dance floor (East Ruimveldt).
- Dance the night away to Soca, Chutney, Reggae, Ragga, Funk and Soul sounds as well as the Oldies but goodies at nightspots such as The Edge, Mojo’s and Palm Court (all on Main St); Club Monaco and Buddy’s Niteclub (both on Sheriff St).
